Sitting in the stand and the young buck at the feeder comes to full alert looking to my right. Up goes the tail and he wheels around and hauls butt the other way. Seen that reaction a million times so I grab the rifle and stick it out the window ready to blast yet another hog. Well out steps 2 Zebras at 40 yards. One is hidden by the brush but I got video of both.

I know what you are thinking...."high fence". Nope these are free range! LOL!

Myself, I think it's pretty cool as long as they don't mess any feeders or equipment up. cheers

Rumor is They got out of a HF place during the White Hat fire of 2011 west of Blackwell. Heard theyíve been seen but never seen photo confirmation.

Why didnít you light one up?

Yup. I think they actually came off the Dbar ranch. I remember my cousin working on that ranch when I would spend summers in Blackwell and they had zebras on their ranch. I have had several on camera around the water trough in my area but never seen them in person!

Thats neat. I'd have a hard time deciding whether or not to shoot one if they show'd up out of the blue. Now if I knew they were around and more than a few I'd pop the 1st one I got a shot at and turn it into sausage....

We have a small place north of Leakey. We had one that would hang out at camp. Not sure what happened to it. I wouldn't let anyone shoot it. It was darn near tame.

Killing a Zebra ranks right up there with killing a Donkey for me. Heck they can even breed with each other. Never heard anyone talk about how great a Donkey taste and I'm sure those stripes don't add any extra flavor. LOL!

It's a trophy for a lot of people, I get that. It's just not for me. I enjoyed the heck out of watching them at such a close distance and would love to see them again. I kept looking for a pride of Lions and listening for the distant sound of a bull elephant but pretty sure I was on the wrong continent just like these 2 Zebras. hammer

They sure are great eating. nyalubwe told me that before I started hunting Namibia and I wasn't so sure. Well, he was dead right....they are superb table fare.

^^ sign of a true sportsman right there. Respecting the wildlife and not riflefor the sake of rifle

Nevertheless, Iím happy to come dispatch them if they start tearing up your feeders. rifle

I would trap them and sell them personally. I wouldn't have any desire to shoot one unless someone wanted them gone for some reason.
